Chapter Summary

This chapter contains Bibliography and Index which presents a list of reference books and articles, terms and concepts relevant to the study of F. M van Helmont's Alphabet of Nature, which was one of many books published about language in the early modern period. The book argues that Hebrew was not only the original language, or Ursprache, but that it is also a "natural" language inasmuch as Hebrew words exactly mirror things. It belongs to the debate over language that marked the transition from the pre-modern to the modern world. Involved were profound issues about the origin and nature of language that could lead authors like van Helmont to imprisonment and even death.
